Black Bean & Chorizo Soup

This comforting black bean soup is pumped up with spicy chorizo and is quick & easy to prepare, making it the perfect weeknight meal for a cold evening.

Black Bean & Chorizo Soup 1

This month for the Secret Recipe Club I cooked from Nicole’s blog, Hapa-tite. Her cooking passion involves the mixing of different food genres together in order to create one fantastic meal, because as she so well stated “that’s how some of the best dishes (and peo­ple ^_^) are made!”. Which leads me to the first recipe that caught my eye on her blog which was her Soy-Glazed Burgers. I will be adding that to my menu plan very soon. Other potential recipes to appear in my kitchen include Rhubarb Ginger Crumble Bars and Pistachio, Cranberry, and Crystallized Ginger Cookies.

The recipe I first had to try was this fast and easy black bean soup. Since I moved back to Ohio from Tennessee during the coldest temperatures of the year, I’ve been in desperate need of comforting soup to warm me up from the inside. After seeing chorizo in the ingredient list for this soup, it was promptly added to the menu. The flavors from the chorizo blended exceptionally well with the rest of the soup, little to no salt was necessary, and made it heartier than a typical black bean soup. Cooked rice or quinoa could also be added if you need more oomph. In fact I may try just that next time because I am definitely going to make this again.

Crunchy Thai Chicken Salad with Peanut Dressing

Avoid boredom and change up your salad routine with a sweet and spicy peanut dressing, crunchy peanuts and chow mein noodles.

With my new kitchen still not fully situated, baking has been thwarted. But that may be a good thing until I can get back into my regular gym routine. Yes I am still slacking on the decision as to which gym to join. I think it is partly due to knowing that gyms always get crazy busy in January and if I wait a little longer maybe it’ll die down. In the mean time, I’ve started jumping on the healthier eating train (to balance out those Taco Bell trips). To satisfy the sudden onset of a Thai craving I made this salad full of chicken, carrots, red bell pepper, peanuts, and chow mein noodles. Then top it off with a sweet yet spicy peanut dressing.

Christmas Wreath Pizza Ring

Turn your pizza into a Christmas wreath with the help of refrigerated crescent roll dough. Stuff with your favorite pizza toppings for a tasty and festive appetizer.

Christmas Wreath Pizza Ring 1

When it comes to making homemade pizza I’m all about homemade pizza dough, as made evident by the many different pizza dough recipes I have shared. It’s just too easy! In the time it takes my oven to preheat, the dough has risen. However, I have yet to try my hand at homemade crescent dough – now that intimidates me. So to make this festive pizza ring resembling a Christmas wreath I went ahead and bought 2 cans of refrigerated dough.

This Christmas wreath pizza ring would be a great idea for a holiday party. I brushed it with pesto to give it a green hue and cut the bottom of a bell pepper out to look like a red ribbon. Inside it’s stuffed with cheese, pizza sauce, and three meats: pepperoni, Italian sausage, and prosciutto. Place a bowl of pizza sauce in the middle and it’s ready for the table!

Baked Chicken Fajitas

Trade in taco night for fajita night with these easy baked chicken fajitas. Served with your favorite toppings and wrapped in warm flour tortillas.


For this month’s Secret Recipe Club I was assigned to Rebekah’s blog Making Miracles. After browsing her recipe list I found myself quickly adding recipes to my bookmarks for things such as Italian sliders, seared pork tortas, and of course oatmeal peanut butter cookies because you all know how much I cannot ignore a good peanut butter recipe. But ultimately I landed on a recipe for baked fajitas – Mexican Monday anyone!?

Baked Chicken Fajitas 1

Fajitas are one of my favorite Mexican dishes to order and I was excited by how easily it came together, and using only one pan, making it a perfect weeknight meal. Serve it with your favorite toppings all wrapped in a soft, warm flour tortilla and your cannot go wrong. I did increased the amount of chicken and bell pepper slightly but other than that kept the recipe the same. Thanks Rebekah for the great meal!
